In July of 2013, SoftBank and Bloom Energy formed a joint venture, Bloom Energy Japan, and this is the first project to come out of the new partnership.
This initial Bloom Energy deployment represents a new path forward for safe and reliable electricity generation in Japan. Bloom Energy’s fuel cell technology addresses Japan’s need for reliable electricity as the country continues to transition away from nuclear power.
Bloom Energy has more than 100 MW of Bloom Energy Servers installed in the U.S. Earlier this year, the company opened a large manufacturing center in Newark, Delaware and completed a number of mission critical projects, including a 6 MW deployment at an eBay data center in Utah.
